G is for Green, a color we don't see right now





Photos by Richard Schear and Kay Davies                            

Whether it's green green grass; green leaves on wildflowers in the coulee where Dick and Lindy go for walks; green weeds in the town where we live; or green shrubs in our back yard, we haven't seen much of this color for a long, long time. It's been one of the snowiest winters southeastern Alberta has seen in quite a few years, too, and we miss the color green - we miss it a lot!

Posted for Mrs. Nesbitt's ABC Wednesday, hosted weekly
by her team of talented photographers and alphabetizers.

When will the green be back? We are just starting to see the first stirrings of spring, with the snowdrops and crocus popping their heads up. Does make one feel a bit cheerier x

EG Wow said...

No, we do not see much green right now. Soon, though!

I live in a city called the garden city, yet green does seem to be dwindling too. Some nice photos...

I'm looking for that green here, I know it is just around the corner.

Green is one of my favourite colours with purple;o)

Grand photos! I'm looking forward to touching some real green. Another still-snowing day is on for today's slip n'slide entertainment. Bah.

A lovely look back ....and forward to the promise of Spring to come.

Hildred and Charles said...

Lovely little snatches of greenery - we are expecting another fall of snow here tonight, and I do yearn for green grass and breaking buds.

Oakland Daily Photo said...

At least the days are getting longer. Makes it so much easier to get up in the morning.

I hope everything is "Wearing the Green" by St. Paddy's Day.

Oh when will Mr. Green come back for a visit? Soon, I hope!

Some of the White disappeared today... it's not green where the snow was, but hopefully it won't be too much longer. May your green arrive before long, too. :-)

Today it's pollingday for the first Chamber. One of our 13 parties is the Green party, which is in favour of a green and healthy environment, against nuclear power plants, against the armsrace, for better healthcare. It's the sixth party. So not the smallest.Well you might see some of it when you come to Holland! See you then!!

Mara said...

At least you have some snow covering, we only have brown grass and brown everything else. Very depressing. Although the snowdrops and the crocuses are coming up now! Not long before the tulips...

Lily Hydrangea said...

I wish I thought of this! There is a lot of green around Long Island right now since most of the snow has finally melted this last week with all the rain we've had. It is so refreshing to look down and see green grass, even if it is a bit tired looking.
I love your little bunnies.

Dhemz said...

there's a lot of green areas here in TX....:) good choice for letter G this week.

Great to be here. Hope you can take a look at my ABC Wednesday entry as well. Thanks!

Hi Kay
Right now I am wishing for you over there yellow sun, green grass and blue sky, but most of all that when you visit over here you will get to see a Blue Tit. Have a colourful day.

Martha Z said...

Here, in the lower elevations of California this is the season when we see green. Soon the wildflowers will rush into bloom before the hot dry weather returns. Our hills are usually a golden brown before summer officially arrives.

Rambling Round said...

Hope everything greens up for you soon! Just beginning to see green down South.

KaHolly said...

Great green pictures. Makes me yearn for spring even more!

Joy said...

Lets hope it won't be long before the bunnies are basking in the sunshine on green banks.

Paula Scott said...

Green is coming soon! Just a few more weeks, for sure.

Cezar and Léia said...

These pictures are BEAUTIFUL!
Lovely post!

Just think how lovely it will be when green does return - a treat for the eyes and the soul:-)

Carola said...

We await green here as garden season approaches.

Jingle said...

cute bunny.

Beverley Baird said...

After tomorrow we should see a bit more green (well, sort-of-green!) We are getting rain for many hours and into tomorrow. Hopefully there won't be flooding.
Here's hoping spring is around the corner! Great photos!
have a wonderful weekend!
